I too am still under the weather, with a cold that will not let go of me. So with the snow turning to treacherous ice on the roads, I am hunkering down and playing nurse with my littlest one and in the moments he sleeps all curled up snoring gently I have been either sitting at my desk studying or in my sewing room working on stock.
Having attending various craft fairs and shows over the holiday season I have really thought about what I make and what is worth me making. I have noticed a big trend at fairs for small but cute things, so with this in mind I have been making cute button hairbands in Japanese fabric and little fabric button earrings.
Not to mention normal button earrings, with of course the dotty red buttons.
I have really enjoyed designing the packaging and think they go very well in the fabric boxes. My packaging is rather rustic and simple so this sewn card keeps in with my Dotty Red style.
With Spring on its way (oh please please come soon) you couldn't ignore the Easter Bunny so I have made a little twist on the lavender hearts and made ickle lavender bunnies....A treat to inhale all that lavender goodness...cute cute ears!
Oh and of course everyone favourite... bunting and lots of it!!! So I feel I have some stock now, this time last year it was cushions, I have finally found a supplier for my feather pads which really helps on the price front for me.
So I carry on looking after the little one and half term approaches, I am going to sign off for the week and spend time with my family, we are off to a place with people we have not seen for a while, a big old log fire and lots of fields and woods to explore oh and I am sure we will visit the odd beach. As we escape the real world for a week I hope what ever you are doing this next week it will be a blessed time, a time of good health and laughter...and lots of it.
